Melbourne, Music and Me curator Dr Kipps Horn speaks with “Singer/Songwriter/Presenter/’Slashie’â€� Ella Hooper.
Why do people gravitate to the music industry? It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll and a desire to make music and connect with audiences must be paramount in the face of set backs. But what happens when fame strikes and a musician becomes – a celebrity? How does it change them, and their relationship with the audience?
Exhibition curator Dr Kipps Horn speaks with Ella Hooper - whose twitter handle proclaims her as a “Singer/Songwriter/Presenter/'Slashie'” Ella fronted four times ARIA Award-winning group Killing Heidi with her brother Jesse. She's also gaining recognition as a solo artist, and knows about the desire for - and pitfalls of - fame and celebrity both first hand and as host of Telstra's Road to Discovery digital masterclasses to help emerging artists navigate the notoriously tough music industry.
This event is presented by RMIT Gallery as part of the exhibition Melbourne, Music and Me.
